Faithful to the movie and books

nevitt | May 4, 2014 | Review of LEGO Lord of the Rings

Fans of the books or movies will love this with tons of easter eggs present for those gamers willing to explore it's many side quests. LOTR treads a fine line between being suitable for young children (who will absolutely love this) but be solid enough for adults. There is a ridiculous amount of content but unfortunately it can get repetitive at times. Playing through the story mode once is highly recommended and the world opens up afterwards for collecting the remaining items if needed.

The imprecise controls were a drag on the platforming and I would have preferred a more involved combat system but the overall charm and polish of the title means this can be overlooked.
